Forehead reduction surgery, also called as hairline lowering, is a brief, generally safe procedure designed to reduce the vertical width of the forehead up to 2.5 centimeters. Clinichub doctors advise this surgery to people, whose hairline exceeds 5 and 6.5 centimeters, which is the proportionate forehead measures.
In Clinichub, forehead reduction surgery is done under general anesthesia, local anesthetic is also used in the forehead area to help reduce pain and bleeding. First, the hairline and the area of forehead to be removed will be marked with a surgical marker. An incision is made along the marked area of the forehead and hairline, then the skin from the connective tissue underneath will be separated and the area that has been marked for removal will be cut out. The top incision along the hairline is then pulled down to join the forehead incision, that closes the gap and shortens the forehead. The scar formation is minimized and is hidden almost completely by the hairline upon hair growth.
